Two of the young couples we always spend some time with when we are here moved to new homes – one after a mud flood and one from the bottom of a quarry.

We are self-supported missioners. We’ve rented our home and our Roton Point unit, and this is the 16th summer that we are living with local people in Kenya. Last year we kept in touch with our friends here by text and email.

We are visiting students in schools in four different regions. We are also spending time with some young people that we, and many of our friends and family members, have helped to go to colleges and universities. Quite a few of them now have good jobs - and they are helping others to improve their lives.
